Octopus Attack!

Well, not really. A woman boating in the Pacific Ocean and grabbed an octopus that a fisherman had landed, and as a joke, put it on her face to take a picture. Sounds funny, right? Maybe so, until the octopus decided that her face was food and chomped down on her chin. The octopus has a hard beak that it can move around and open like a set of jaws to drill into shells of clams, or in this case, a woman’s chin. After the octopus breaks into the prey it pumps in a toxin that stuns or kills its food. The woman in this story now has a long recovery for which to look forward. Not so funny now.
